How to Make It

  1. Start by cooking you farro according the instructions on the package. As they cook, start preparing the other ingredients (mostly cutting) and whisk the dressing together.
  2. Add each of the ingredients to a serving bowl, top with the dressing, toss and enjoy!

If you don’t like farro or can’t find it, you could also use barley, quinoa, or brown rice!

If you don’t like butter beans, you could also use cannellini or navy beans instead.

How to Store It

You can store any leftover farro chicken salad in an airtight container for up to 3 days when placed in the refrigerator.

We chose to just cover this dish with aluminum foil and enjoyed it back-to-back nights for dinner. 

It’s also a great option if you’re meal prepping!
